  • Description

    Hello I am a 28yr old male from Wolverhampton England currently living and working in Oswestry England.

    I currently work on a glamping site just outside of Oswestry as the groundsman and animal keeper. We have a 5acre site with one horse, two donkey's, two kunekune pigs, four cats and two dogs. I love working outside come rain or shine and i am always kept busy as if it's not the animals it's the weeds or the fruit and vegetables.

    Growing up i was a member of a scout group in Wolverhampton and i absolutely loved it. While i was a member of the scouts and after when i became the assistant leader, i learnt a lot of skills including camping, making a fire, map reading, tracking and also some manual work including clearing areas of woodland, overgrowth and chopping and stacking wood.

    In my free time i am quite a keen cyclist but not the speed or mountain bike kind. I don't drive so my main mode of transport is my push bike, but i also like doing 50+mile rides for fun and i try to do a bike tour every year. In 2019 i cycled 685miles around the border and coast of Wales and in 2020 i cycled the north coast 500 in Northern Scotland.

    I also love a quiet or sometimes not so quiet night in with friends and family. Nothing can beat a good game of cards or a board game and i would gladly teach you or your children some new games, i have plenty.

    29

  • What else ...

    I enjoy being outdoors in the garden but i am also just as happy indoors cleaning out cluttered areas such as garages or barns or even car washing as I've done before on past workaway's.

    I am also more than happy to just spend time with children helping them to learn English and being good company for them.

    I would love to learn new skills while i am volunteering, mainly in the garden but any skills are valuable. If their is anything you would like to show me or ways you think i can improve please let me know i will always listen. Hope to speak to you soon.
